    I've been into metal for 20 years and have only recently discovered Motorhead's greatness! I always thought they wrote the same song over and over again. But then, I actually listened to their records. I was shocked at how much variety and groove they so masterfully employ.

    They're just a great band.

    In 20 years, nobody will even now that In flames is not some other brand of Barbecue Lighter! Nobody will ever confuse between Lemmy and barbecue stuff...fuck nu-metal.

    When someone says "i hate this band" i understand it the way "i hate this bands music". Same with reverse "i love this band".

    take note: Motorhead was active in the 70's-80's. obviously, their lyrics & music won't match up to today's styles. but they laid the foundation for faster, lyrically better metal. so think about that.

    So, we should respect them because they "lived the life"? You're full of shit. Not everyone appreciates that life style, or wants to live it. Now, if you're talking about their influence on the other hand, that's different. However, you must understand, it's possible to hate a band and respect their influence on a genre.

    while motorhead seems monotonous and monodynamic to me, i respect their contribution to the genre of metal, and that they've connected to so many people.

    You brought back a 6-month-old thread for this bit of genius?

    MOTORHEAD FUCKING RULES. THAT IS NOT A QUESTION TO BE ASKED. MOTORHEAD RULES LIKE BLACK SABBATH AND PRIEST AND THE SCORPIONS RULE --- BEYOND CRITICISM FROM CHEESY LITTLE KIDS.

    Period.

    They're cool, but like Priest and Sabbath? :err: Hell no. And this thread was six months old? Wow. I didn't even notice when I posted in it, I assumed it was new myself, since it had been brought to the top.

    to The Grimace...
    what does it matter how old it is? a discussion like this is relevant whenever it is answered in...
    only Black Sabbath from the bands you mentioned 'rule', Judas Priest are pathetic, The Scorpions are absolutely dire, and Motorhead are a one very bad trick horse! (of course, all my own opinion, so you can't say I am right or wrong!)... and as for calling me a 'cheesy little kid'.
    hmmm. i doubt that very much.

    Judas Priest are pathetic? Seeing as it was THEM that developed metal into a genre, you're calling the whole genre of metal pathetic. Personally, that being the case, I think it's time for you to start hanging out at a non-metal message board rather than the non-metal forum of a metal message board. A place like that would be much more fitting for you. :Smug:

    so just because i don't like a band that were there at the start of the genre doesn't mean i don't like the entire genre, i just don't like that particular band, and think lots more bands do it a lot better.

    of course i've heard all their old stuff/new stuff, allsorts of stuff, i'm not just saying this for the sake of it, i DON'T LIKE THOSE BANDS! simple as that. I can hang around at the metal forums, the non metal forums, anywhere I like as I have an appreciation and a love for all sorts of styles, the more extreme and intense the better, just because i don't agree with you doesn't mean I am necessarily right or wrong, none of us are right or wrong....

    is it just me, or have we all heard this argument before.. christ!! get over yourselves will ya!

    If you don't like metal, you shouldn't be hanging out at a metal forum, right?

    If you claim the band that started metal as a genre is "lame" you don't like metal. It's a very simple train of thought to follow.

    If it wasn't for them, metal would have began and died with Black Sabbath. You may think their music isn't that great, however, you have to admit that they've had great influence and for that alone aren't "lame".

    You're wrong.

    Being of the opinion that Judas Priest is "pathetic" is... say it with me kids... WRONG.

    i fucking LOVE metal, it is pretty much my entire life, it doesn't mean I have to like judas priest OR motorhead OR even Iron Maiden or whoever, i like exactly who i like, and regardless of your opinions of what i like or don't like, i still fucking LOVE metal beyond anything else! there is a difference between liking a band and accepting what they did for a certain genre, which i have not once argued!

    I don't seem to recall saying anything about Motorhead or Iron Maiden. Your attitude that Priest is lame made it seem like you think they just happened to be there, and weren't helpful to the genre. What sub-genres of metal do you predominantly listen to, anyway? That could explain quite a bit.
